WS: Online Assessments through Infinite Campus

In my ongoing quest to make everyone's lives a bit easier, to reduce the amount of paper we generate, and to make better use of the 1:1 environment we are blessed to have, this week I'm looking at how to do Online Assessments through Infinite Campus. Now, there is no reason that you can't use this tool to do every assignment you do in class. It takes a bit more work to set up than the simple "Student Work Products" tool that I've covered before. But it also grades three out of the four question types for you automatically (only essays require you to review them). So you will spend a bit more time to save you time in the long run.

If you aren't in need of a full blown online learning environment (OLE) but want to take advantage of doing assignments and assessments electronically, you've got a pretty good option right in IC that gets rid of the extra steps an outside system would result in.

Here is the presentation that I'm using this week to teach my workshops. If you can't make it to a session, check this out and then make an appointment during my office hours with me if you need more 1:1 time with it.

As always, let me know what you think about this post!

Hide Dropped Students in Infinite Campus

I had a teacher ask me if there was a way to hide or remove students who are no longer in your class. The answer is maybe.

If the student is showing up as red in your gradebook though, you can hide them so you don't have to worry about them. Here is a screenshot to help you do it:

Keynote Interactivity (and my 200th post)

When I talked with teachers about Nearpod last week, there was a teacher at the highschool who really wants to keep his animations within Keynote while having the interactivity like Nearpod . I told him that I'd look into it to see what was possible. Short story: I'm not having any luck at all.

Build with Chrome (Lego Building Time!)

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos . If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
